Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse, is an indoor version of lacrosse played in Canada and becoming very popular in the US. Box lacrosse is played between two teams of six players, in a hockey rink with a turf surface. Due to the presence of hockey boards, there are fewer balls out of play, fewer stoppages in play, and more rebounds.


  1. The speed is way faster than anything you would see outdoors.  It makes playing outside seem like going in slow motion.
  2. Playing in closer spaces means your stick skills have to be tighter and quicker. Your stick handling improves because there is no room for error, quite literally.
  3. Shots come hard and fast. Goalies see more shots in a shorter period of time. Their hands and reaction time become much quicker.

Winter Box Lacrosse

 Box lacrosse sessions will be held at the Midland Civic Arena on Wednesdays and Thursdays from Nov through Feb. Each session will consist of one hour of scrimmaging.

Spots are limited. 

No special "box" protective gear will be needed. Field lacrosse protective gear will be adequate (for boys, that means: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, and cup).
